Chicago Play Pen loved my digital design so much they gave me a daunting task. Make their logo into a giant cutout for their store, complete with a writable chalkboard. What do you think, did I nail it?

Yes, I am that mom. The one who takes a simple request to bring a dish to their kids kindergarten lunch party and makes it complicated. But Mr Fruit Turkey was a HIT!! The kids ate the entire thing, including his head, lol.

I love a challenge, especially a 4' x 7' challenge that needed to be able to fold into a car. A dance instructor contacted me hoping I could make a stage prop for her students upcoming dance recital. We settled on creating a over-sized yellow school bus but since they didn't have a truck we needed to make it portable. It was a pickle for a moment but cleverness prevailed and it came out great!

I met a lovely young lady who was planning a whimsical Quinceanera. She was looking for someone to make a large number of paper flowers for her bouquet, head bands, table settings and corsages. She needed over 100 hand made paper roses. Whew, am I tired after this one.

If there is one thing you should have learned about me is, I love learning new ways to crafts. So when I got a sewing machine, I had big plans. One being my making the kids costumes just like my mom made for me. Now I am still a novice so when Little Miss wanted to be Sofia the First , I had a big job on my hands and not enough experience to make a dress from scratch. Luckily, I found a regal purple dress that just needs some changes to make it work. I took it apart to put it back together but I think it came out pretty awesome.
